Word of the day Expatiate

Today’s work is Expatiate.

The pressure was suffocating, the sun was blinding but was nothing compared to the noise. It burrowed into his head and expanded threatening to push his brain out of his ears.

Quickly he closed the door. He tried walking into the world once every year and it became more difficult every time. If it were up to him he’d just stay in his dark cool basement bedroom. Frank, his brother, insisted that he try leaving every year and every year the fear was overwhelming. How could people live like that, so much noise everywhere bright lights, all trying to assault your senses? Then there was the smell and the sky, by far the sky was the most terrifying thing he could imagine; a blue void waiting to collapse or a black speckled vacuum relentlessly beating on the fragile atmosphere of earth. He’d tried to explain it to his parents, his brother, the doctors; they said he was delusional or agoraphobic. They wanted to roam freely in the large scary world and all he wanted was to stay in the basement, reading and writing. He wasn’t a great writer he hadn’t been published or tried to be he simply enjoyed putting words and stories on paper.

In his writing fear didn’t control his world, he controlled everything it was the closest he’d been to true freedom. In his stories he could expatiate the world and his imagination.

He had friends in every character he wrote or read but no one understood his passion anymore then his fear.

One day he’d have to leave, he knew it, but for now he was happy and had been for so long it didn’t matter to him that he was missing anything because he had everything he needed. The fear was still there and strong but the will to be normal died so long ago he barely remembered it.

Alien abduction stories were some of his favourite to read but he could never write one. It didn’t come to him like other stories could, he certainly never expected to live one.

A review of The Ugly Truth

uglytruth_poster2I seem to have a soft spot for Romantic Comedies. They’re kind of like chocolate chip cookies; I know the recipe and I know how it’s going to end but I can’t stop eating them. So I shamelessly went to see The Ugly Truth and honestly I liked it.

Short Version: Decent Romantic Comedy, a little coarse, with good actors.

A review of G-Force

gforceI have a high tolerance for bad movies but this one was just terrible. There were a few cute or funny scenes but definitely not worth sitting through the movie.

Short Version: If you have any respect for the intelligence of your child or enjoy the Spy Genre than don’t see this movie.
